Perfect props
If you're new to yoga but concerned about a lack of flexibility, Iyengar yoga could be a great place to start. "Iyengar yoga is good for people who are slightly older because it's not so dynamic or strenuous and there's a big emphasis on the use of props to create safe alignment - something that's very important as we all get older," explains Miami yoga instructor Fred Busch, founder of www.fredbusch.com.
